in america. i think we would be worse than a third world nation if we were to try to do that. i just don't -- i don't agree with those numbers. i think your numbers are way off. i think if we don't have protection about preexisting conditions in health insurance, if we don't put parameters on how the private sector operates, i think you're in much greater danger of health care quality and costs. so i think there needs to be parameters in the health care system. government has a responsibility to protect the health and welfare of its citizens and i think this is a very important function. so i just disagree with the premise. >> question over here on this side the room. yes, sir? >> yeah, i'm a physician assistant so i understand this problem from the workings, from the inside. i also have traveled abroad as a consultant for a medical products company so i also understand socialized medicine from the inside. europe, asia. my concern is that we've changed the debate here. it used to be called health care reform. now all of a sudden it's health insurance reform. it is health care reform. >>
